Industrial accident prevention strengthened

April 02, 2017

The Labour Department has strengthened law enforcement, inspections on construction sites and workplace safety promotion campaigns to prevent industrial accidents.


Secretary for Labour & Welfare Stephen Sui made the statement to the media today, saying the department is investigating the recent fatal industrial accident at the construction site of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.


 "We will see whether there should be improvement measures, and whether prosecution should be made. The Labour Department is liaising with various parties with a view to conducting a service-wide campaign to raise the overall awareness of the industry, especially in terms of working at height."
